Overall, BOTOX ® Cosmetic, when administered by an experienced cosmetic surgeon, is one of the safest and most effective ways to eliminate the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles throughout your face.

Clinical Trials

Clinical use of BOTOX ® Cosmetic has been under review for many years. Currently, BOTOX® is approved for use in more than 80 countries for a variety of medical uses. BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most common cosmetic procedure performed in the United States, with well over 10 million people having received injections.

In clinical trials conducted by the FDA, it was found that common side effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic included redness or bruising around the injection site. These complications lasted less than 48 hours in a bulk majority of cases. The FDA has found that only 1 in 1000 recipients of BOTOX® Cosmetic experience any serious side effects.
